  North Carolina Family Code Nights

On March 12, elementary schools across North Carolina will be recognized for scheduling an important event in family engagement and computer science education: "Family Code Night." Parents of students in Kindergarten through 5th grade across the state (including 120,000 PTA members) will be invited to www.NCNights.org to see if their school is among those hosting this free and important program later this spring. Family Code Night has been recognized with an invitation to the White House and will be featured on the front page of the New York Times. Hosting a Family Code Night is within the capability of nearly any school, no coding experience is required, and all needed materials are provided. It is an ideal step any school can take to advance K-5 family engagement and computer science learning. NC STEM is one of the lead partners in the Family Code Night effort in North Carolina. View the Event Flyer for more details. Principals and educators - don’t be left out! Visit NCNights.org, download the Event Kit, schedule a Family Code Night for April or May, and put your school on "The Map" on March 12! Please enjoy your NC STEM e-Update. Tweet us @NCSTEM with your suggestions, feedback, or thoughts about this issue or future ones.
